51c — Observing the Sabbath (Exodus 20:8-11)

How Christians Observe the Sabbath —

The Sabbath is a gift from God to all people as a day of rest after the work and worries of the normal week. It is a pause — a time for people to rejoice in their completed work, to remember the example of their Creator, and to refuel their energy for the week ahead through rest, worship, and fellowship. Whereas the Sabbath is actually the seventh day (Saturday), most Christians observe the principle of Sabbath rest on Sunday (the first day of the week) in honor of Jesus’ resurrection.

Listen to Pastor Colin S. Smith as he explains the principle and benefits of observing the Sabbath rest.

My Prayer

Dearest Father, You took one day of rest after your week of creating the world. You ask us to follow your example. Thank you for giving us this privilege of peaceful rest. Amen.
